In partnership with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA) and UCLA American Indian Studies Interdepartmental Program, the Fowler Museum at UCLA is offering a special presentation and tour.

The Fowler Museum at UCLA engages with indigenous communities in a number of ways. This presentation will highlight some of the programs Fowler Curator, Wendy Teeter and archaeology staff do with the Tongva/Gabrielino, Tataviam, and Chumash communities as well as describing the Mapping Indigenous Los Angeles digital storymapping project. Other projects that Dr. Teeter and Chief Curator Matthew Robb will discuss include repatriation and creating wider accessibility of collections, field documents, and researcher archives.

Dr. Robb will lead a guided tour of the Intersections: World Arts / Local Lives, highlighting the collaborations that lead to decisions about what collections and objects are selected for display and how these processes engage the different themes presented in Intersections.
